Is any one still there?
I fear I may have lost you. I've been gone a while. But for good reason.
I've been really tired.
Yep. I'll give you a second to take that in.
Baby #3 is on the way.
And it is wiping me out.
Being pregnant the first time with Emma, I had all the same symptoms, but no other babies to take care of. Therefore, I could take a nap when I wanted, eat when I wanted, and ignoring the laundry only affected me.
When I was pregnant with Dean, I was living with my in-laws. I didn't have to take care of the entire house, did much less grocery shopping, and had tons of help.
But now. Oh, now. I have my own house I'm responsible for which is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain because of my "I'd rather be napping" attitude. I do the grocery shopping with 2 muchkins in tow, which on average, take about 1 hour more than it should. And finding something to keep them busy is easy in the summer, but it wears me out pretty quickly. I'm pretty sure I'm going to regret complaining about the hard summer I've had when I'm trapped inside the house this winter with two rowdy kids and a newborn.
Here's the deets:
Due Date: January 11th, 2012
How far along: 13 weeks today
Weight Gain: As of last appt (6/22), I had lost 1/2 a pound. (thank you morning sickness)
Maternity Clothes: Yes. Everything yes.
Feeling baby: Yes! I have felt a definite kick two days in a row. :)
Food Cravings: Not so much cravings as aversions. No garlic. Ever. Eck.
Gender: We won't know until the baby is born! Surprise!
What I miss: Drinking in the summertime. (Didn't I say that last year?)
What I love: Baby kicks. They never get old.
Looking forward to: Finding out what the gender is.
Milestone: Getting over the morning/noon/night sickness. Thank goodness.
I certainly did not expect to be pregnant so soon, but what a blessing.
And, now since I don't feel like yakking on my keyboard anymore, I should be updating more often.
Thanks for listening.
